About FoodGeographies

Welcome to the website of the Food Geographies Working Group of the RGS-IBG.

We hope to use this space to facilitate conversation, as well as to share knowledge, experiences, and training opportunities.

The aim of the Food Geographies Working Group is to bring together geographers who study all aspects of food, from across the breadth of geography’s sub-disciplines, and to raise the profile of geography as a key voice in food related research, policy, knowledge, and action.

Group Aims:

The aim of the Food Geographies Working Group of the RGS-IBG is to bring together geographers who study all aspects of food, from across the breadth of geography’s sub-disciplines, and to raise the profile of geography as a key voice in food related research, policy, knowledge and action. More specifically the Food Geographies Working Group will:

  • stimulate and develop a critical debate about food within and beyond geography
  • provide an intellectual home for the wide range of food-related research being conducted by geographers
  • encourage the study of geographies of food across the sub-disciplines of geography (including but not restricted to social, cultural, physical, historical, and economic geography) through, for example, offering a prize for the best undergraduate dissertation relating to food matters
  • foster dialogue and engagement and promote collaboration between geographers, policy makers, activists and other relevant stakeholders interested in the geographies of food through the organisation of events
  • support research and teaching related to the geographies of food through initiating publications, maintaining the web and social media presence and through the organisation and sponsorship of conference sessions
